In collaboration with Long Island Latino Teachers’ Association, Nassau County Youth Board and Hands Across Hempstead:
- At Long Beach Reach, in the Sharing and Caring Diploma Program for Pregnant and Parenting Girls, young mothers or young mothers-to-be experience weekly Herstory workshops, allowing them to look at their pasts and imagine new futures, translating into increased literacy, listening and problem solving skills carrying over into other areas of their course work including social studies, science and mathematics.
- At Southampton Elementary School, a bilingual multigenerational book club, inspired by the request of a third-grader, reaches parents and children exploring Herstory’s materials together and meeting Herstory authors from their community.
